What’s better than a top-to-bottom Chinese downhill race between you and your friends? Try adding 400 other people all jacked up on energy drinks into the mix.

This one-of-a-kind downhill race pits skiers and snowboarders of all abilities against one another in a literal sprint to the finish. The concept is easy: Sprint to your skis or your snowboard, throw yourself down the marked course, go as fast as possible and finish at this year’s biggest après-ski party.
This year’s crazy-awesome prize package will be awarded to the fastest man and woman—in both skiing and snowboarding—and includes a custom trophy, an Ikon Pass for the 2018/19 season, a surprise Red Bull prize pack and of course, bragging rights for the entire year.
With professional skiers and Red Bull athletes Torin Yater-Wallace and Johnny Collinson slated to race alongside the rest of us, it’s bound to be a competition for the record books. And, if this year’s successful event in Åre, Sweden was any indication, the Red Bull Homerun Aspen will bring out the best in everyone, on the slopes and off.
Following the big race, “the best après-ski party of the year” will open its arms to competitors and spectators, alike, to celebrate a season’s worth of good times. Pro tip: Arrive early if you don’t have a race bib, it’s not called the best after-ski of the year because it’ll be empty…
